Another week rolls around, and so do a bunch more of your links. Enjoy!

  • A colleague of mine in the JavaFX team at Oracle, David Grieve, has started up a new blog. His first post is titled ‘lambda to the rescue‘, and it covers how, with the help of lambdas in Java 8, he is able to write better code in JavaFX.
  • Juergen Kress has a post about there now being NetBeans support for JavaFX on iOS.
  • I announced, on behalf of the ControlsFX project, that version 8.0.5 was released. This release is a major release with a number of new and useful controls. If you are unfamiliar with ControlsFX, be sure to check out the features page for a high-level summary of all the cool stuff available in ControlsFX.
  • There have been new releases of ScalaFX for both JavaFX 2.x and 8.x. If you’re a Scala fan, then you should definitely check this library out.
  • Pedro Duque Vieira has blogged about adding ProgressBar support in his JavaFX Metro stylesheet.
  • Geertjan Wielenga has interviewed Walter Nyland and Jason Wexbridge on their new book titled ‘NetBeans Platform for Beginners’, and the relevance of the Java desktop.
  • Jeff Martin posted an update to SnapCode this week with new Mouse and Keyboard sensing features, new pen graphics features and numerous improvements and fixes.

That’s that for another week. Catch you all next week! 🙂
